  1. 2017 Shishkov/Gravelin HFC Pickup Special!

    Yep! It did the trick... with flying colors!! (Earlier longing for a LP to complete my stable. That idea is now gone completely.) The Charlotte bridge is simply fantastic in my Hamer Studio Custom. My son helped me install it today. We are both floored. Clear and distinct, both clean and with full on "metally" gain, a broad ranging perfect pup for my needs. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Josh!!
  2. 2017 Shishkov/Gravelin HFC Pickup Special!

    After it getting stuck in the swedish customs for 5 days (!)... yesterday I finally got the Charlotte Bridge pickup from Josh! You are a great person in all respects and again I thank you!! I will get assistance from my technically gifted son this Saturday to install it in my custom ordered Studio Custom - see my avatar! (This project is very exciting!) An audio report is forthcoming!

  4. 2017 Shishkov/Gravelin HFC Pickup Special!

    I got a message from Josh telling me "my" Charlotte bridge PU is ready, wound up and just about to be shipped to me (in Sweden!). I feel very happy about this!! My dear 10 year old Black transparent Studio Custom from 2007 will get the upgrade that she deserves! Thanks again, Josh!!

  7. Shishkov Problem

    Oh, I remember quite tangible, the wait for my custom Studio Custom Hamer in the spring of 2007... It was ever so stressful. Waiting from January 'til June. (Perhaps a relatively short period compared to yours.. but still.) You have my true sympathies. One has to be VERY patient and deliberately WAIT to check messages and email. Practice waiting to check...and it is SO hard to do.
  8. NGD. Bought a Les Paul

    Congrats!! Nice find! The good ones has got a really lovely tone. Too heavy for me, though...
  9. I'm glad you enjoyed my music. Steve. Well it has got great receptions here at home, Has been performed as a whole a couple of times already. And parts of it has been played several other times. The music exist partly due to you, dear Friends!! Listen: Some of you HFC'rs wrote very encouraging words to me when I was down nine years ago. I am still extremely grateful for that.!! Since then i recovered quickly and had the fortune of finding my (second) wife online eight years ago. We got married in 2011 and she asked me to compose the wedding march. (It can be found here as track 15 Preludio Grande.) After that I wrote the 50 minute long Organ symphony ( presented here as tracks 1-12) partly thanks to all that inspiration.:-) Thank you!!
  10. Dear friends and music lovers. As I have told you earlier my main musical goal is to develop my composing skills. It took me over a year to compose this 50 minute piece. And I would greatly appreciate to hear about your impressions of my music. Lots of different influeces. From Bach (the track "Danza" ) to ZZ Top ("Robusto"). Here below is a link to my Soundcloud account where you can listen to my CD "Organ symphony etc". All music is composed by me and this album is played live by Sigvard Selinus, who is the main organist at Johannes Church, Stockholm, Sweden. The music was recorded at the first performance to be issued on this CD. Played by Sigvard Selinus. All music written by: Yours truly Curt
  11. Hamer Acoustic Guitar

    I have seen an electic mandolin they made for Jethro Tulll (ca 1980) That's the closest i've seen... apart from the semi acoustic Improv.
  12. 0050 "Super C"

    It will be fantastic! :-)
  13. 2016 challenge

    Ok... I think I'm going to do a cover (i e new arrangement) of Nick Drake "Voices" - It might take a while so in the meantime listen to the fantastic song here. This video plays his original recording - one of the last songs he made.... - it is a very soft and nice song and I think I'm going to use electric guitars and going all Rock on it! :-) (His version is perfect as it is so no need to try to get close or similar of it. Better trying to do my own thang...)

    I always use headphones... No-one gets hurt! :-)
  15. Something Wicked This Way Comes
